Mikkeller Drink’in Berliner Yuzu Berliner Weisse at 2.7% ABV (C$3.90 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 330 ml, best before 9-Mar-2018, acquired 23-Sep-2017, reviewed 27-Oct-2017)

Appearance: hazy pale straw with one finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: lime, citrus zest, floral, lacto sour. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (8/10) Palate: light body, moderate-high carbonation, clean crisp moderately tart finish. (4/5)

Works for me! In fact, I think I like it better than the other “Drink’In Berliner” I tried, the Hop On, not just because it’s not sweet like that one was, but also because the citrus (yuzu, I guess) in this one works really well. (I don’t think the similarly named Drink’in the Sun is really a comparison here, because that one was a wheat.) It’s similar to lime or lemon, but with a floral character. Nice. (15/20)
